While you’re away from home, a security system watching over your belongings can help make you feel at ease. Finding a good security system that’s cheap is a little hard to find sometimes. Why not use something you already have at home, and get automatic results if someone is messing with your stuff?
Meet the Witness. This helpful little Mac app utilizes iSight to make a motion-activated security camera that will let you know if anyone is in your home. You can instantly receive photos and video straight to your iPhone or iPad. This does require the Mac OS X 10.6 and if course it’s going to need the built-in iSight to work, but it only costs $39, or $29 for students. They even throw in the remote app for your iPhone for free. Whether it’s a burglar or a nosy roommate, this app can be mighty useful to keep your things safe. It will also finally answer the question of what your cat does when you’re away from the house.
